Café Stash is situated in old Montreal about 400 meters walk from the Cathedral. They offer a very tasty brunch menu at a competitive price. There is an eclectic selection of beer but the list not extensive. Everyone should find a style to their liking. We had the crepes stuffed with asparagus, ham and cheese that came with a green...

We went there for my birthday, and they had live music playing. It was a nice atmosphere and a great place to eat in the old port area of montreal. The pierogi was just like in Poland and the fried chicken was excellent. They even had a great selection of desserts.

Raw mackerel starter was excellent, followed by assorted pierogis which were good too, but there wasn't enough of it. Though I could have ordered more. Prices very reasonable. Sat at the bar as the restaurant was packed. Bar and wait staff chatty but professional and efficient. Great atmosphere esp with guy playing the piano for a long time. Wasn't hurried... More

A polish restaurant that we visited with a polish friend who says it tastes like the food his mom used to make. The low ceilings and long church pew type seating creates a cozy and historical feeling to the space. Service was excellent.

I am half Polish and grew up with my Polish Grandmother cooking all of the time, this restaurant is my absolute favorite. I always recommend Stash to anyone visiting Montreal. Such amazing food and atmosphere every time we go!

We were looking for a different dinner, away from steaks, burgers and chicken. Coming from the Midwest, finding this Polish restaurant was a "welcome home". For apps we ordered the pickled herring, beef pierogis, a beef filled pastry( don't remember the name) and sausage and onions. All were perfect, the perfect size and tasty. The dinner was the following: pork... More

We went with a party of 10, 6 adult and 4 kids. I understand for big party food is slower, but it took 15 mins for someone to come by after we were shown a table. I have never had polish food so I am not sure if it's suppose to be that salty, every dish had so much salt... More

Who knew? We live in a Polish community in Michigan, surrounded by many Polish restaurants. Who knew we could visit Old Montreal and have some of the best Polish entrees we've had in a very long time. And, we just happened upon this as we were just being tourists and walking around. Absolute great find and we couldn't be more... More

We made reservations for dinner for a weekday. It turned out to be quite busy so I'm glad we did. The cold beet soup really was delish ... very flavourful, fresh tasting and quite surprising. There were lots of good options on the menu for mains and I settled for the breaded mushroom crepes, essentially 2-crepes stuffed with sliced meaty... More

This restaurant was close to our hotel and recommended by the concierge. We were a bit hesitant since we thought the food would be heavy and we were concerned if they could accommodate my husband who is lactose intolerant. This was one of the best and most memorable meals we had even though everything we had during our stay in... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
